Enable advanced platform settings via the payroll platform

By default, when configuring the locations for your organisation, you will have one primary location and can then create sub-locations under the primary location. However, there may be scenarios where your organisation requires additional top-level locations. If this is the case, you can enable this feature via the Advanced Settings feature.

As an organisation, you may use other external software that integrates with your payroll platform via an API. To make sure the correct mapping between employees and your payroll settings, you can add an external ID against a chosen payroll feature, such as deduction categories or work types. If this is the case, you can enable this feature via the Advanced Settings feature.

Enable manual employee onboarding

Important

Employee self-setup is the default setting for onboarding on the platform. The feature lets you change that back to the traditional process of manually onboarding employees.

  2. Click the   Business Settings menu.
  3. Click the Payroll Settings submenu.
  4. Under Advanced, click the Advanced Settings button.
  5. Tick the Default to Add Employee checkbox.
  6. Click the Save button.

    Helpful Hint

    When you enable this setting, you are making Add Employee the default button on the platform dashboard. This means manual onboarding is the default, but Start Employee Self Setup will still be an available option. You can see this on the photo below.
